New here and new to calorie counting!

#1
Hi guys!

Ive been lurking around this site for a while now and i have finally started my diet!

Calorie counting seems to be the way forward for me, im a bit OCD when it comes to arranging things and i love to be organised and plan so it fits me perfectly, i already have my meals planned out for the week!

Im going for eating at the lowest 1000 cals a day to around 1300, 1500 if needs be but rarely.

Ive been meaning to get my bum in to gear for ages, im getting married in September 2012 and 2 days after New Years i got a shock and realised thats only 84 weeks away and im in terrible shape!

I need to loose 4 stone to be a size 14, ideally i would love to loose 6 stone but i will take my goals slowly.

The looming wedding date has proven to be excellent motivation as i was out on Saturday night with friends and resist pizza, which is my fav food and what im more impressed with i resisted ice cold Fosters which is amazing for me, i am a beer fiend and drink atleast 8 - 10 cans each weekend......

.... I know its terrible for my health and the amount of calories in beer :O so im pleased i didnt give in and have suprised myself with my willpower so far!

Anywho im ranting a tad now!

Im hoping to find some support and motivation here and to keep on track and also look forward to seeing other progress :)

Red Dwarf is my obsession.... well one of them lol

Organised is good! I have fun when working out my plan for the week... sad... but i love it!

Today ive had 1133 cals and the intake planned for the rest of the week is:

Wed - 1118

Thus - 1163

Fri -1133

Im also doing 60 minutes of aerobics each weekday evening and walking at weekends, i hoping this will help loads as before i use to just get in from work and plonk myself on the sofa and not move til bed time so all this new excercise will hopefully work!
